Haven't you heard? Angular is dead! We should all be doing React! Joking aside, React JS is a client side Javascript framework that is fast gaining in popularity for its slimness and approach. And since no framework is perfect for every job, it's good to know what React is good at doing so you can make an informed decision for your next project.

In this session we'll look at what React is and what it's strengths are. We'll spend some time on the best toolset to help you develop React apps for your DNN modules.
